President Bill Clinton recognized along with luminaries in science

New York, NY (Vocus) May 13, 2010 -- Mount Sinai School of Medicine at its 41st commencement ceremony today honored a former president, legendary scientists in the field of genetics and human genome research, and renowned humanists whose work has advanced biomedical research and provided much needed access to health care both locally and internationally. President Bill Clinton was among the honorees, and also addressed an audience of nearly 200 Mount Sinai graduates as commencement speaker.

Held at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, the event reflected Mount Sinai School of Medicine’s commitment to being a world leader in genetics research, and in providing patient care reaching across international borders. The graduating class embodies Mount Sinai’s dedication to translational science, medical advocacy, and the mentoring spirit that has transformed medical education. A total of 198 degrees were granted, including 116 MDs, 33 PhDs, 18 MPHs, and 31 MS degrees.

Never before have we been in a position to do such good. See yourselves in whatever health field you choose as agents of positive change,” President Clinton said.
